Peace Week 2020 ends on Notes of Determination and optimism

A sincere “thank you” to all the community organizations who overcame tremendous obstacles to share their visions of peace with their fellow Delawareans during Peace Week 2020. This year’s events were notable for bringing us beyond geographical boundaries to every corner of the place that we call home through the magic of video conferencing. Thank you for attending and for your support in making peace an every-day goal.

These are the 68 organizations who collaborated to plan and offer events–thank you for your creativity and generosity.
